Abstract

HIT is a massive thrombotic storm. The incidence of thrombotic complications is up to 50%, and the mortality rate is up to 20% in untreated cases. The patient’s presentation was subtle, with mild thrombocytopenia. The consequences would have been catastrophic if cardioversion was done using the standard guidelines.
